We had heard good things about Costeaux and were excited to try breakfast in Healdsburg on our way to Russian River Valley wineries. After a 10 minute wait for acknowledgement, our server condescended to bring menus without bothering to speak to us. We ordered a mocha and a coffee and told him we wished to order a pastry, at which point he turned away without speaking and threw our menus on the stand beside the cash register. We didn't know if he was going to bring us our drinks or not, so we went inside to order our pastries, since no offer was made to tell us what was available. Miraculously, our drinks did appear at our table while we were inside, but our server continued to sulk and pout. I wanted to ask him if he needed a "time out." Better pastries and more courteous service was available at Whole Foods in Sonoma.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was refreshing and fresh for breakfast. I wouldn't seek it out again but it was good for trying places in town.

My husband and I had lunch there yesterday and I had a bowl of their excellent onion soup and then a fantastic dessert. He had a cup of the onion soup, a fantastic duck sandwich and a wonderful dessert. Very gourmet for a lunch spot with no atmosphere.

Delicious Eggs Benedict and bakery treats! The house-made preserves were the perfect complement to the crusty breads. We'll be back when we're in the area!

We were hiking around Healdsburg taking in the shops and galleries. Stopped in front of this restuarant and thought it might be a good place to grab a bite of lunch. It was a cold drizzly day, to our surprise when we opened the door the place was packed. There were tables out front so we sat outside. They offered the outdoor heaters but they weren't needed. We ordered BLT's-very tasty with Brie on Crossants. We'll go back when we are back in Healdsburg.
